There is a firm base of structured tannin in this wine. From that comes a tight, mineral texture and red-cherry fruits. The wine is young, still with its bubbly bright fruit. It comes from one of the best sectors of the appellation. This is a cru wine with the potential to age. Drink this wine from 2019.
